Paradise 03:09
Paradise There are shadows all around us who are feeding only lies The evidence is burning and it’s right before our eyes There is food upon the table but it smells a lot like shit They take away our freedom and they get away with it So tell me now, what are we doing I can’t just sit back while I watch our world ignite and die, yeah So much for love yeah Let’s set the night on fire and watch it burn in to the light, yeah I see evil in the spotlight as it holds its bible tight Peaceful people dying through the bangs and flashing lights There’s a school that now lies empty and there’s blood upon the floor Some say what a tragedy, but I see so much more So tell me now, what are we doing I can’t just sit back while I watch our world ignite and die, yeah So much for love yeah Let’s set the night on fire and watch it burn in to the light, yeah Paradise, losing grip, every day, sinking ship No control, such despair, moral goals, laissez-faire

Getting out of the Rain Ain’t it funny how you don’t know where you wanna go Until you find yourself halfway down another road But to complain is just a waste now Somethings we have no control I remember when our eyes met so profound We could barely stop the walls from crashing down But now things just aren’t the same I can’t remember your name The road more travelled is the one that makes you change your mind It’s easy said but it is hard to leave it all behind The constant struggle is it enough to derail the train It doesn’t matter ‘cause the risk is worth getting out of the rain Ain’t it crazy how you wake up one day all alone Spending every minute staring at your lifeless phone Well, loneliness is just a phase now Sometimes you’re just on your own I can see the sun rise in another town Everyone is heading up but I’m going down And I just can’t get no play My friends are so far away

Please take offense Just write a script take a sip til it goes away This is the world that we’re in today It won’t be long til it’s gone, long gone So clap your hands, do the dance that we oughta do What the fuck is this world coming to I don’t belong it’s so wrong, so wrong I spent the last four years alone, going through the motions Just trying to make it on my own Little did I know, that everything was broken All I had reaped was ever sown And all else fades away, and I lie here away at night so late and so alone I long for your embrace, I need to feel the taste of comfort Long to hear you say that I’m ok That everybody feels this way from time to time And I’ll be fine The future’s open and it’s mine to finally shine So fill the hole in your soul and persecute a few Fuck everyone who don’t agree with you I don’t belong it’s so wrong, so wrong Just wait in line for a fine til we get your bill Everybody has the time to kill It won’t be long til it’s gone, long gone This is my last year spent alone, I’m gonna find a friend If it’s the voice inside my head I listen to the tone, I cannot comprehend I take back every word I said And all else fades away, and I lie here awake at night so late and so alone I long for your embrace, I need to feel the taste of comfort Long to hear you say that I’m ok That everybody feels this way from time to time And I’ll be fine The future’s open and it’s mine to finally shine

Mile High Club Take my hand fly away with me now The sky’s so blue and the engine’s so loud Just trying to take it all in Over the trees as you’re holding me tight It’s hard to believe it was love at first flight As I’m touching my lips to your skin I never would believe, I could achieve The way that we began But please don’t misconceive I did not have this planned Here we go, I barely shut the door From the mirror to the floor we got down to this wild affair I hope you know, that I cannot transpose The beauty under your clothes that I saw a mile in the air Take it slow, exit one at a time The whole plane knows, and they’re forming a line But you instantly soothe me with a smile Back in my seat as you drink from my glass We’re sitting in coach but I’m flying first class And I feel like I’ve just ran a mile I never would believe, I could achieve The way that we began But please don’t misconceive I did not have this planned Here we go, I barely shut the door From the mirror to the floor we got down to this wild affair I hope you know, that I cannot transpose The beauty under your clothes that I saw a mile in the air

On+On+On 03:34
On+On+On She sticks to me like a rooted tree or a red wine stain I let her be so she can vent to me over and over again She’s gone to the dogs it’s just part of her plot Never left alone, I would rather be shot All she wants to do is just complain And I don’t know what’s on your mind, but you’re still talking all the time I nod my head and she goes on and on and on and on I don’t know how else to explain you live, you love, you ascertain So I just sit here she goes on and on and on and on and on Stupid phone won’t leave me alone it just never quits I’m her friend so never force an end I just take the hits She’s gone to the dogs it’s just part of her plot Never left alone, I would rather be shot I get caught looking at her tits And I don’t know what’s on your mind, but you’re still talking all the time I nod my head and she goes on and on and on and on I don’t know how else to explain you live, you love, you ascertain So I just sit here she goes on and on and on and on and on
6.
Boundaries 03:37
Boundaries So much for my adventure, this world is full of rules and guidelines So much more to define I’ll see you in the morning, fuck heeding all these warning, I’m done There’s no changing my mind I’m leaving this behind me, you’re never gonna find me Finally I’m not waiting around Something gives inside of me, and I am finally running free Gonna make my break before I’m falling down Forget your fucking lectures, your condescending word are useless You’re just wasting your time This train is bound for glory, I’ve got my guitar and I’m boarding And I’m feeling sublime Where do you go when all these boundaries try to hold you down I’m letting go ‘cause there is more and I am leaving now
7.
No Brakes 04:23
No Brakes Wake up, another morning on the floor You’d think I’d learn my lesson from the night before Hold up, my feet are bare and body’s sore Give me food and I’ll be ready for some more Shut up, I can’t believe that we have none I don’t even remember running the oven So what, all I know is we had fun I think it’s time to have ourselves another one This is it lets have some fun We’re making good times on the run The music’s loud and we’re all here It’s time to have ourselves a beer So pass the bud or pour a shot We’ll give it everything we got We’ll keep this fucking town awake It’s all I know ‘cause I have got no brakes I’ve got no brakes x4 What’s up, I grab my first one at the bar I wish that in life drinking beer would get me far Back up, put all your keys here in this jar We’re to stay now anyway who needs a car Step up, grab a card or shoot a ball Come on take your pick ‘cause we have got it all Guess what, Kyle is passed out in the hall Making memories is always the right call

Swimming 04:28
Swimming It was a Monday when I woke up in mid July I finally gathered all the courage to realize That the girl I despise was living above me Rewind to January flying so high again I fell in love with a girl and she reeled me in When I reached the shore I was drop kicked to deep sea Present day and I am back to where I began I’m simply standing on my feet in the shallow end But here comes a girl, to mess up my world And knock me down again, oh Step back and take a look around, oh Don’t you know that everything is lost before it’s found, oh Will I every live this down, when I fucking leave this town There’s something wrong cause I can’t move on Until someone find me Something isn’t going right, cause I was all alone again all last night Will the cycle end, I can’t find a friend When she’s always on my mind It was a new city and a new career It took a lot of fucking trouble to get here But I met a girl who caught me right away She had the looks the brains and the dream She had every little something that I need But she had a man and it ruined my whole day Present day and I am back to where I began I’m simply standing on my feet in the shallow end But here comes a girl, to mess up my world And knock me down again, oh

Car Crash 03:34
Car Crash I went out Friday with the guys, I met a girl and it was no surprise She wanted me between her thighs My baby had stayed at home, I wanted just to spend the night alone So I didn’t get my phone I came home later on that night, she was pissed and we began to fight It doesn’t matter who was right She downed the liquor from a jar, grabbed her keys and got into the car She didn’t make it very far, yeah It all happened so fast, a night mist, a car crash A last wish, a last breath, a regret before death A streetlight, a siren, a hole dug, a violin All memory is a blur it’s too late to save her Who am I supposed to be, I’m sick of living here in misery The walls close in on me I’m out of fuel to feed the flame I still refuse to play the fucking game Do you even know her name It all happened so fast, a night mist, a car crash A last wish, a last breath, a regret before death A streetlight, a siren, a hole dug, a violin All memory is a blur it’s too late to save her

This Is Love 03:23
This is love Another morning well I wake up late I have no place to go But I don’t worry I still have my faith the only thing I know I met a woman that I can’t let get away, so wise and beautiful So many feelings that I struggle to convey, still inexcusable I want some honey I finally get a taste and then it goes away And it’s not funny but when I turn around they’re laughing anyway Nobody ever told me love was destiny, I just hoped it true And now she’s leaving but she’s not too far away, I’m losing my virtue This is love, this is love, this is love x2 She lives above me even closer than she did before the end And lines are fuzzy, I’m in love with her but she calls me a friend And I just wanna wake up next to her again and breathe her in so deep I’m in a pickle ‘cause my love is genuine, but talk is still so cheap Hey there baby dry your eyes tonight yeah You know I wanna be together They say it gets easier but that’s not true The burning sun just fades the leather And though the pain will fade well nothing else will stay the same for long This I assure you You may be in my arms or one day soon I’ll sure be gone just know That I will always love you
11.
Stuck 02:43
Stuck The wind blows her hair around I’d like to be there with her but I just get pushed back down It doesn’t matter what I say every day everything is just gonna fall apart again Well I guess I oughta know how it goes by now We’ll never be more than friends Her eyes draw me in like a black hole My mind and body shake and though I try, I still lose all control And I don’t know if it’s her lips or her hips or her mind, but I can’t escape the notion I just wish that she was mine all the time for good Here comes the demotion Stuck in between a rock and nowhere Friends say to leave, but I still don’t care “You’re gonna be here forever and ever,” they say So, let it be, ‘cause I’m in love with her
12.
Never be found I woke up simple and happy today It’s been a long time coming You see for years I feel I was wasting away But now I’ve hit the ground running Yeah, I’ve been alone for such a long time I got so good at faking But now she’s here and I fear I’m losing my mind And I just cannot take it I’m all alone, I don’t belong, I must be strong I’m moving on, I’m moving on Yeah, someone’s always breathing down And I can almost hear the sound She’s right behind me gaining ground But I will never be found I woke up depressed and lonely my friend It seems I never left here I wrecked my bike and spent my saving again And now I’ve run out of beer Yeah, I fuck it up so often it seems The shit it keeps me grounded But she’s still here and I fear it’s only a dream I’ll never get around it I’m not alone, I do belong, I must be strong I’m moving on, I’m moving on
